 Anyone?  Is the Concordance available on cd-rom?

Marvin Spevack's Harvard Concordance is, as I am sure you know, only a
condensed version of his Complete and Systematic Concordance in 9 vols.
Vol. 9 (published in 1980) of the "big" concordance makes you
independent of the Riverside text: it is devoted to Substantive Variants
and gives you rejected and collateral readings of the "good" quartos and
the folios as well as their adoption in a cross-section of modern
editions. (Vol. 8 of the Concordance gives you concordances to the "bad"
quartos, vol. 7 to the non-spoken material.)

Best wishes,
M.M.

Pervez Rizvi brings to mind the texts and software that were assembled
at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Ian Lancashire.
Ken Steele, the founding poppa of this SHAKSPER matrix, spent many
quality hours licking those bears into recognizable shape.  I'm sure
many other scholars have as well.  I once had a disk fat with digital
Folio and quarto texts.  But in moving from one computer to another, one
house to another, and office unto office unto office, I'm now textless.
Has anyone been in contact with Toronto and the Oxford text Archive
folks?  I remember a few years ago we had correspondence about
relatively low cost access to these things.  I hope we aren't tumbled
into the nets of the unavailable, inaccessible, and unaffordable.

Ever ,
Steve Inaccessabilowitz

(For some of us, "getting up to speed" with contemporary technology
still means that we have yet to figure out which end of the pencil to
put into the electric sharpener.)
